True innovation comes along only once in a blue moon. Pixton has found a way to redefine comics and transform them into both a learning tool and a social community.

It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.

– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade

English Teacher in New York

My students loved working with Pixton! We completed the reading of a graphic novel, and the students were to create a comic from a list of ideas generated from the novel.

– Ms. Gatheridge, 9th Grade

Teacher in Hallock, Minnesota

Pixton was an excellent tool in my Grade 10 writing course. The ease of evaluation, setting projects, class rubrics, and teacher supervision was amazing. Student projects were creative, informative and students were very much engaged. Great software and a great site for teachers to manage classes and assign projects. Five stars all the way.

– Mr. Tulk, Grade 10 English

Teacher in Deer Lake, Newfoundland

Wonderful website. I loved how I could assign a project, create a rubric, have the kids self-assess, grade and give feeback. Pixton is my new favorite website.

– Ms. Kearns, 6th Grade Science

Teacher in Colorado

It's a great tool for having my students summarize lessons. I love it!

– Ms. Balk, 12th Grade Tech

Teacher in Clayton, New York

What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!

– iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer

Pixton is wonderful. My students are using it to tell the stories of Edgar Allen Poe. Retelling the stories in Pixton has created an interest I had not seen before. It is wonderful!

– Ms. Sorrell, 6th Grade

Technology Coordinator in Chicago, Illinois

Using Pixton for Schools as a way for students to show what they know was brilliant. My students wrote a comic strip in Bahasa Indonesia.

– Ms. Hill, Grade 7

Languages Teacher in Australia

All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.

It gave my students a new way to express themselves.

– Ms. Sasscer, Computers/Math

Teacher in Owings, Maryland

Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I have my students read an informational text and explain it in a comic. It is a rigorous assignment because they must take an informational reading and turn it into a narrative. The kids love it and so do I!

– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration

Westampton, New Jersey

We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.

– Mrs. Kemper

7th Grade English Teacher

I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.

– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6

Science Teacher in Alberta

Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.

– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher

King City, California

It helped me provide a creative outlet for my students so that they could showcase their literary skills in an interesting format.

– Ms. Ballard, 12th Grade

Teacher in Birmingham, Alabama

We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!

– Ms. Butler, Teacher

Pixton for Schools provided my students the opportunity to apply the concepts and theories learned in sociology because they had to create a comic that illustrated it in a "real-world" scenario.

– Mr. Weedon, 12th Grade Sociology

Teacher in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.

– Christy Crawford, Technology

Teacher Advisor at Scholastic.com

Pixton for Schools was a fantastic tool to promote further understanding, application, and authenticity to my LOTE (Languages Other Than English) classroom.

– Ms. Wong, World Languages

Teacher in Melbourne, Australia

It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.

– Ms. Baran, 11th Grade

Teacher in Mineral, Virginia

Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.

– Keri Green

Massachusetts New Literacies Institute

Pixton is a great tool for educators to help extend the lesson being taught. Students are given the opportunity to improve their creative writing skills through the use of a fun, interactive web 2.0 tool. I have shared this site with the members of my site, Technology Integration in Education.

– Mr. Limperis, Technology Facilitator

Lawrence, New Hampshire

Pixton is very user-friendly, designed in a safe way for students. It's a fun and easy way to reinforce all Language Arts skills, especially for those who are not strong readers.

– Amy James on CBS News9

Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.

– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade Languages

Teacher in Leonardtown, Maryland

It was a great experience for students and teacher, made them work hard and voluntarily.

– Ms. Hawlicki, Grade 8

English Teacher in Germany

Pixton enabled my students to present their understandings of environmental issues in creative and exciting ways. Students were engaged throughout the process and the functionality was simple but also enabled detailed customisation for those students that wanted to extend themselves.

– Mr. Fitz, Grade 3 English

Teacher in NSW, Australia

Pixton for Schools was a great way for students to practice written dialogue using the Spanish phrases we learned in class. I also loved the feature that allowed me to create a rubric on the site, use it for grading, and have students self-evaluate with the same rubric.

– Ms. Perez, 10th Grade Spanish

Teacher in Haddon Heights, New Jersey

Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.

– Ms. Mason, ESL Teacher

Greenville, North Carolina

Pixton was great fun and really got the pupils engaged. Through creative presentation they produced some high quality understanding of the topic.

– Ms. Martin, Grade 9 Arts

– Ms. Gouthro, Grade 5 English

Teacher in Nova Scotia

My students that don't normally want to write, were writing dialogue and loving it. After they completed their assignment on bullying prevention, they created other comics on different topics on their own. Comics are another form of writing, with a twist that students enjoy.

– Ms. Trella, 7th Grade

Teacher in Youngstown, Ohio

Excellent for its role in evaluating a unit in science, social studies, language arts or in many other disciplines. In addition, it offers technology in a fun way that students enjoy.

– Mr. Worthen, Teacher

The students were able to use Pixton to create their own "graphic memoirs" after reading Stitches, by David Small. Pixton allowed them to explore the relationship between words and images in telling a story.

– Ms. Kelly, 9th Grade

Teacher in Kent, Connecticut

Unique medium for presenting information in a fun and interactive way. Students were very interested in producing their own comic in order to share key curriculum goals.

Pixton for Schools gave my students a creative way to utilize their research and a more enjoyable way to document information.
